Huawei may have been in the news for all the wrong reasons recently but the company tried its best to ignore the uncertainty surrounding the future of its smartphone business to launch not one but three smartphones for the global markets earlier this week. George Zhao, the CEO of Huawei's sub-brand Honor, took to stage in London on Tuesday to unveil the Honor 20, Honor 20 Pro, and Honor P20 Lite, at an event where the audience could've been forgiven — and indeed those on stage — for having a lot on their mind.
On Sunday, news broke that Google was suspending business relations with Huawei to comply with a US government order that blacklisted the Chinese company.
The move meant Huawei would have lost access to updates to Google's Android operating system, a potentially damaging move to the company's prospects outside of its home market of China. Out of the trio, the one that grabbed the most attention was quite understandably the Honor 20 Pro. The Honor 20 Pro comes with what's Zhao called a three-layered design, with a depth layer, a colour layer, with the glass layer on top. All this combines to offer coloured finishes that look different as light shines upon them, continuing the trend we've seen in many recent smartphones. The phone will be available in Phantom Blue, which is kind of a mix between blue and green, and Phantom Black black and purple finishes.

The highlight of the Honor 20 Pro of course is its four-camera setup at the back. On paper, that sounds like a super lineup and as you would expect, Zhao and other company executives spent a considerable amount of time showing off the capabilities of the smartphone, including a DxOMark score of Gadgets had a chance to spend some hands on time with the Honor 20 Pro after the launch event, and click a few pictures just to get a feel of the camera app and its performance.
We noticed that the scene detection worked as expected outdoors, detecting "Blue Sky" and "Greenery" during the course of a couple of shots. The image quality looked pretty decent on the phone's screen, but we would reserve our judgement until we get to test out the Honor 20 Pro and its siblings as part of our detailed review process.

We did not that the Honor 20 Pro take a couple of seconds to save the final image see image below. It's worth pointing out that the units on display weren't running retail firmware that will ship in India, so we hope this is something that the company can resolve in the final builds, otherwise it will get annoying pretty quickly.
The Honor 20 Pro feels solid in hand, and though it's listed at grams, it felt reasonably light for its size. The devices of two notable Asian companies, Samsung and Huawei, are hugely popular options.
Amongst many improvements, this has an increased battery life and introduces PowerShare, allowing you to take charge from another device. Android and iOS aren't the only operating systems around. These are brilliant, wearable devices that display notifications, track fitness metrics, allow you to access your phone in a simple interface, reply to messages with your voice and much more.
During your research, double-check for compatibility with your phone. For example, the Apple Watch only works with iPhones.
